The Sri Lanka Navy yesterday apprehended another two boats carrying 146 would-be illegal immigrants bound for Australia in the seas east of Trincomalee.

Navy spokesman Commander Kosala Warnakulasuriya said the apprehended boats were later taken to Trincomalee and the people were handed over to the Criminal Investigation Department for further investigations.

The Sri Lanka Navy has apprehended more than 1,846 illegal immigrants mostly bound for Australia from January this year in an effort to prevent people reaching Australia by illegal means.
